Description
It is the year 2048. Because of advances in medicine, the old are living longer and longer, selfishly ruling the country while devouring vital resources. The American population is rendered chronically ill by environmental toxins and is gridlocked into a smoldering financial crisis. When the Young People Party unexpectedly wins the elections, the new President enacts sweeping changes, creating anguish and opportunities for all. Everyone 74 and older is cured while the young are lured with all kinds of incentives, including free access to the "Flower Houses", where love is stressless and accessible. At a huge price, the massacre of 100 million elderly, the country is transformed from a decadent, sick and violent civilization into a green, fresh and enthusiastic nation, albeit with more than a few reservations from each one of the main characters. The melancholic, burly Wolfe, a caring physician up to his unpredictable epiphany, triggered by a fated accident; his artsy and promiscuous girlfriend Blue and her many suitors; the speedy evolution of Sady, from a fractured child to President of the United States; the disillusioned tycoon Don, ruling the life of others from his immaculate penthouse; the hungry, ruthless womanizer Norman; the candid professor Savious, a former Nobel Prize up for termination who would rather be persecuted than ignored; and old Frank, who plans to escape the cure on his sail boat. While the hypothetical scenario depicted in this novel is unlikely, it is certainly a possible evolution of the current state of events in the USA. Hopefully the forthcoming years will dispel this new dystopian shadow, as it happened with the one casted by George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-Four. This manuscript was left on the counter of a restaurant on Bleecker Street, New York. The author remains anonymous.
